Is there anything more summery than navy and white stripes? Year after year, this remains my favorite summer color combo and my closet shows it. Fresh white is a dream on sunkissed skin and navy feels like the perfect summer alternative to black. Timeless and so easy to wear. Paired with any version of a red lip and metallic accessories (I typically choose gold for a more nautical look but thought it would be fun to go silver this time around) and you’re ready for summer weddings, date nights, or tomorrow’s 4th of July festivities! I’m still looking for the perfect navy and white coverup to go over a white bathing suit for tomorrow but that’s a whole different story. Fell in love with this one but it fit more like one sizes fits 0-2, frustrating for a freaking $300 bathing suit coverup. So that went back to Free People real quick. I digress. This MSGM dress is my new obsession for a more amped up summer look and it’s on sale everywhere (linked below). Go grab it and I’m sure you’ll still love it for summers to come. Or if you’re noncommittal like me, you can rent it!
